Assembled without instructions….

Hajime….. Oddly enough, I once again have nothing. Rather than re-blog old material, I’ll merely give you what I do have done, and, be done with it for today. I’m not sure what’s going on, but, I seem to have misplaced my muse… I’ll look around today, & see what’s up with that; I doubt seriously reality will worry too much about my absence, just like it ignores me in general. Leelu will be happy, too, as it will free up more time for her…. Cat bonus!

Who knows what the future may bring. I don’t, but, I know what was in the past, and that’s what you’ll get today. One nine-star old-school pearl, naked, as they most often are these days. Skin is good. But, I digress, and must be off, into the Big Blue Room, to do battle with the forces of reality…. Or not, as I prefer to slip through without disturbing the Force. We’ll see how that goes. For now, let’s do this, before it gets any later….

Shall we Pearl?….

“It is easier to perceive error than to find truth, for the former lies on the surface and is easily seen, while the latter lies in the depth, where few are willing to search for it.” — Johann Wolfgang von Goethe



Naked Pearls
Observations on Life at Large


I went to the doctor, I went to the mountains
I looked to the children, I drank from the fountain
There’s more than one answer to these questions
pointing me in a crooked line.
The less I seek my source for some definitive
The closer I am to fine.

“The sunlights differ, but there is only one darkness.”

~~ Ursula K. LeGuin, “The Dispossessed” ~~


“The ruling power within, when it is in its natural state,
is so related to outer circumstances
that it easily changes to accord
with what can be done and what is given it to do.”

~~ Marcus Aurelius Antoninus — Meditations, iv, 1 ~~


“It is your resistance to ‘what is’ that causes your suffering.”

~~ Buddha ~~


“Take your life in your own hands and what happens?
A terrible thing: no one to blame.”

“He bids fair to grow wise who has discovered that he is not so.”

~~ Publius Syrus (42 BC) — Maxim 598 ~~


“No one is afraid to die without first being afraid to live.”

~~ Solomon Short ~~


“If you understand, things are as they are.
If you do not understand, things are as they are.”

~~ Gensha, Zen Master ~~


There you have it; one Pearl, delivered, as promised, in good condition. Well, such as it is. See y’all tomorrow, ffolkes. That’s my intent, and, though I shan’t give a promise, you may count on it….. Ta, then….

Y’all take care out there,
and May the Metaphorse be with you;
Blessed Be, dearest Carole, Mark,Theresa, & Richy
and everyone else, too…

When I works, I works hard.
When I sits, I sits loose.
When I thinks, I falls asleep.

Which is Why….

Sometimes I sits and thinks,
   and sometimes,
I just sits.

1 thought on “Assembled without instructions….

  1. Well.. in this one.. “Assembled Without Instructions” is inspiration
    enough for me to write a Novel.. but that’s not coming ’till around
    April.. for the third installment of that..
    but yes.. how sad it is that human
    beings are Assembled With
    Instructions.. as the rest of
    Nature innately.. instinctually..
    and intuitively practices life
    free without sidewalks
    of hell
    them down
    to concrete purgatories
    of what came before..
    stick to the
    rules robot
    or you’ll
    get in
    social acceptance
    trouble and that means
    starvation.. no mates
    and stuff like
    that as
    animals innately..
    need each other to
    get the meat
    and vegetables
    of life.. all in one
    soup of life
    a cross
    a fire..
    anyway.. it’s said
    when folks become
    paperback books.. or hard
    covers too.. but pearls
    of wisdom.. i’ll take
    that pARt by
    book.. as some
    stuff is truly worth
    reading again and again,,
    the gift of all the historic pearls
    of wisdom you provide here.. my
    friend gigoid.. in ways of life..
    not just
    and labels
    for men to worship
    and say they have the
    last word of the God of
    Mother Nature true and liGht now..
    as well as dArk and fAiry tales too..
    but alas myths are the hyperbole..
    to market the meat
    of the products
    and without
    that.. it would
    be harder to
    get the vehicles
    and vessels that house
    truth and liGht that have traveled
    this far.. in written and oral tradition
    of story taling.. dArk and liGht WhOLE..
    Anyway.. yes.. may the metaphorse
    be with ya.. friend gigoid.. as long
    as it rides
    free.. iN
    wITh Love and
    KiND In couraGe..
    like Cindafella might say..;)
